August Poem 21: Believing in Angels

To eat or just smell genre writing or

Literary fiction writing has been

The dark poetry. Affected weight from

Literature as whatever process.

Hangover stories. My working novel.

Alex’s clockwork is like rephrasing.

The novel as representation of

Gaging workers. Asking of the readers

Again. They fear the similar people

Of Southern Mississippi, I worked a

Terror out through my heart. Were they to leave

This tome of writing as an antelope.

But they say writing fiction is easy,

And writing is believing in angels.

August Poem 14: Town Punch

Zinfandel servants write of the black. The

Black. Because of minimum luxury

Insulation. Opportunity. Black

Reader knows how to spot the adaption

They turn like television gangsters

The Colonization view of open bails.

Neshoba Central softball team captured

Candidates who have a ballot Tuesday.

Convinced voters cast absentee ballots.

Time willing recount these madly in love

And the adaptations cause directed

Our love, ourselves. We love town punch. We are

Blue Bic, your black butler with years of

Audience while all unknowable.
